Madurai Panthers will be up against Chepauk Super Gillies in Chennai on Wednesday (August 4, 2021). Both the sides will be coming into this game on the back of comprehensive wins in their previous respective encounters.
While Panthers thumped IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans by 81 runs, Chepauk defeated Dindigul Dragons by 24 runs. Panthers have two wins and as many defeats in the five matches that they have played so far while one game was washed away due to rain.
Chepauk on the other hand have played four matches in the competition where they have won two, lost one and ended one without any result as the rain played spoilsport.
Panthers would want the batting line up especially, captain Chaturved and Kousik to continue their form. They had put 184/4 in 20 overs against Tiruppur Tamizhans and then bundled them out for 103.
Chepauk too would be seeking the batting attack to go all guns blazing. The openers did score some runs for the side but the middle order needs to be among some runs to capitalise on positive starts.
Sai Kishore had a brilliant day at the office against Dragons as he scalped a four-wicket haul.

The track in Chennai is likely to help the bowlers, especially spinners. Apart from that, dew can also play a major role in the later stages of the game, so if you win the toss, bowl first.
